The Palestinian Prisoner Society announced that two Palestinian political prisoners and brothers in Israeli jails have now spent 28 years behind Israeli prison bars.

 

On this day in 1993, Abdel-Jawad, 51, and Mohammad Shamasneh, 57, from the occupied West Bank village of Qatanna, were arrested and sentenced to life in prison for their activism in the armed resistance against the Israeli occupation.

 


The two have been refused family visitation of their mother, who is a sick old woman, for the past five years, and one of them, Abdel-Jawad, has also been denied family visitation of his two sons by the occupation authorities.

 


Over 4,500 Palestinian and Arab prisoners are now being held by Israeli occupation authorities for opposing the occupation of their homeland.
